Is this the old one with abysmal write speeds?

Edit: It's apparently the newer one that fixed the write speed issue. Hopefully nobody gets the old model.

This is actually the older one G1 vs the G2 that was just released. It's shown by the model number.

"Abysmal" seems better reserved for describing HDD write speeds. This SSD is still going to be noticeably faster for people upgrading from HDDs and even older SSDs.

I will say that I bought this a while back at $125 from an Amazon deal. I wouldn't bite at this price.

I also bought 2 for around $125-$135 each. Been great so far. Boot speeds less than 20 seconds

So basically, this version performs about the same speed (both sequential and random 4k) as the non-M.2 NVME Samsung EVO 850 2.5" SSDs. It's about 3X slower than the newer version (which is about equal to a 960 EVO or 970 EVO NVME). So yes way better than a mechanical but slow for an NVME. For me at least, paying $50 more for the new version for 2-3x the speed probably makes sense though some will like this one due to the lower price.

You're probably better off with the MicroCenter Drive.

No clue what controller the Dell has, but the Phason controller is reviewed well.

This version is comparable to Intel's P600 series - better than SATA on most benchmarks, but nowhere near top-notch performance. I have an open slot, I'll bite if the price gets closer to like-sized SATA drives. Not there yet though.

Read speeds are pretty high, are they not? And read speeds are going to have the biggest impact on the user's perception of performance in everyday use. If you're moving huge files constantly you will notice the higher write speeds of newer (and generally more $$) SSDs

It's listing the PCIE/NVME speed, which technically the Inland is rated for as well.

I wouldn't be surprised if they are the same drive, just the Inland is more transparent about it.
